Each spring, the Chippewa County Highway Commissioner issues temporary weight limit restrictions in accordance with sec. 349.16 of Wisconsin State Statutes. Restrictions are put in place to protect pavement as frost leaves the roadbed.
The temporary weight limits are set to take effect on the morning of Wednesday, March 16 th , as
soon as signs are erected on all Chippewa County Truck Highways east of STH 27 and all Chippewa County Trunk Highways north of STH 64. Historically, the weight limits have remained in place for around 6 weeks each year, however weather conditions could increase or decrease the actual duration. Additional information on these weight limits can be found by visiting THIS SITE.
